5.1 Audio / Visual DVDs – ODDSAC, Sensurround, and beyond.

Does anyone know of any superb audio/visual experiences mixed for 5.1 surround sound? These types of things seems strangely scarce, despite their potential. Two of my favorites are Animal Collective & Danny Perez’s ODDSAC and Cornelius’s Sensurround.

While not a 5.1 album, Dan Deacon and Jimmy Joe Roche’s astounding exactly-and-simultaneously-not-anything-like-the-title-makes-it-sound Ultimate Reality is a trip in its own right.

I’m aware of (and planning on finally buying) The Flaming Lips’ Yoshimi DVD version (5.1).

And this Bjork live concert looks promising.

But from some Amazon searches, Google searches, and deep forum dives, it seems hard to find anything in the same league as Oddsac or Sensurround. Ideas welcomed!

funny vids grab bag

I don’t scour YouTube for funny videos these days, but I try to use the favorites list to keep some memorable vids around for clutch moments when the Internet is the primary focus for active distraction, especially when there is full-on participatory dueling VJs where you n’ your friends take turns queuing up digital laugh medicine. Here are a few of my favorites. Most are probably pretty old and well worn by now, but think of it as a retrospective of Dominick’s humour* portrayed in an Internet list manifestation.**

(assume that some or all of these are NSFW. depending where you work, obv.)

this is pretty much accurate:

colbert is one of my faves. watch him talk circles around Papa Bear:


no words. if you have 10 minutes to spare, this will teach you a lot about life:
